Slow Flashing LED Indicators?
Permalink  
 


I found a nice little pair of led indicators in a box of parts i was given, but when i hook them up the flash rate is a bit on the slow side?

This is the first time i have played around with led indicators, but i was expecting them to flash fast and that i would need to order in some resistors to slow them down. Thats the norm right? If so...has anyone got a scooby why mine go slow? Battery is fully charged.

Thanks

You'll need the LED relay as well as the resistors.

I got one of these, hooked up the leds front and rear, and they all seem to flash at the right speed...BUT, they all flash at the same time, no matter what direction the switch is pointing!

Anyone else had this problem? Or know how to fix it?

Try wiring it in-between the indicators and the standard flasher unit

I got them to work in the end, i had to remove the indicator bulb from the dash! It seems that i will also have to wire in resistors if i want the dash light back, i put an led in the dash but it just made things act strange..

I have 2 relays because the first one i ordered from china for 1.10 makes a loud beeping noise
